Well, movie is excellently made and it can still be very amusing for todays children although it takes place in 70's. Due to need for 70's environment, movie was filmed in Karlovac, but it really looks like Zagreb in 70's, and characters still feel like todays children. There are some scene's added which weren't original in book and some they were aren't adapted but film is better that way. Mystery part which wasn't originally in book was great touch also, (and more understandable), together with characterization of that dorky cop. Although story could hardly happened in real life movie wasn't unrealistic, some parts even seemed more realistic than in book. Ending in movie was also better way to finish the movie than original ending in book, although it gave slightly sad touch, but not too sad, especially since we know that sequels are coming. Well, I would recommend this to everybody, even adults.
